Playshapes is a set of extra large building shapes for kids to construct their own imaginative playspaces. The project had its debut at the 2018 Annual Pinata Fest, a celebration of artful large scale pinatas made by local artists. The Playshapes colors were chosen based on the previous year’s award-winning Pinata. The playshapes made from high density foam and covered in waterproof material that’s durable for outdoor use. This project is funded by a grant from the Kaboom Foundation as part of the Play Everywhere Challenge and produced in partnership with the East End Foundation.
